If you know where to get a good pho­to of Pence (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


My Father leads me, and content,
I trust in Him to choose my way;
I know that walking by His side
My feet may never go astray;
I know my Father leadeth me,
He leadeth me, He leadeth me.


He leadeth me,
I know my Father leadeth me.

My Father leads, and oftentimes,
Thro’ thorny paths, my weary feet;
But by His side I need not fear
Tho’ blinding storms around me beat;
For as my days my strength shall be—
I know my Father leadeth me.


And when I reach the river wide
Whose stormy waters darkly flow,
He’ll hold my hand and guide me safe
Into the haven I would go;
And there my song shall ever be,
I know my Father leadeth me.
